Organic whole Paleskin Peanuts (aka groundnuts, jack nuts and monkey nuts)

Arachis hypogaea L. is a member of the legume family (Fabaceae), which is a low growing annual plant, probably native to Brazil but now widely cultivated in many countires.

Peanuts are actually not really 'nuts' but rather are classified as legumes or beans.  Unusually, after the plant's pea like flower has been pollinated, a stem from the flower base grows downwards and buries into the soil. Fruit pods, usually containing one to three seeds (peanuts) then develop entirely underground. Each seed is covered with a thin papery seed coat. Unshelled peanuts, remaining in these pods, are often sold as 'monkey nuts.' 

Peanuts are also the source of ground nut oil. Non-organic varieties are often genetically modified and highly refined (chemically processed).

Our peanuts have been shelled, but not blanched, and so retain their papery thin red skins which contain beneficial antioxidants. 

Peanuts contain many health benefiting nutrients such as vitamin E, B vitamins, folates, and include a rich source of minerals such as copper, manganese, iron & phosphorous. 

These tasty, crunchy nuts can be added to trail mixes for snacking and used for both sweet and savoury dishes. 

Storage:

Store shelled peanuts cool, away from sources of light and heat, and preferably in an airtight glass jar. Peanuts can be refrigerated to lengthen their shelf life.

ALLERGENS:

* Unfortunately, peanut allergy is now fairly common in children and adults. A Peanut allergy differs from tree nut allergies since peanuts are not true nuts but are legumes. It develops when the body's immune system responds with a hypersensitivity to one or more of the peanut proteins.
